Watershed and Pollution Prevention Education

In collaboration with I Love A Clean San Diego, Think Blue is proud to offer standards-based classroom presentations for middle and high school students within the City of San Diego. Our watershed presentations teach students the importance of water quality protection and help students identify everyday actions they can take to keep their local watershed healthy. Students discuss watersheds, urban runoff, the water cycle, food webs, biomagnification, eutrophication and marine debris.

Think Blue Brigade

The Think Blue Brigade is a middle and high school environmental club within the City of San Diego dedicated to the protection of San Diego’s beaches, bays and waterways through participation in pollution prevention events and projects -- all while earning valuable community service hours. Students can join as an individual, as a group or as an already existing club.

Membership in the Brigade demonstrates a commitment to help keep San Diego beautiful, and our beaches, bays and waterways clean. Brigade Club members show others how important water quality is to San Diego and lead the way in increasing their knowledge of storm water issues and affect change within your community.

The Think Blue Brigade is coordinated by education partner I Love A Clean San Diego.
